This is always one of the season's toughest sellers and today is no exception. Paul Midgley's yard has struck form so Strategic Order can go well after a fair opener at Redcar while Studio Star and Izzthatright weren't separated by far at Beverley and the former especially should improve. Sudest looked as though a drop back to this trip would suit after showing good pace at Hamilton and Binky Blue can put her experience to good use as can TOYTOWN and it's the latter who gets an each-way pick in a tricky race as he's shown ability at a higher level. The newcomers Penny Race and Secret House hail from yards that have won this in the recent past and any market moves should be noted.
